Couples choose their culinary adventure from the chef's prix fixe menu, prepared in their home kitchen with professional cooking equipment. Diners may opt for dishes such as beef focaccia flatbread layered with mozzarella and roasted-tomato-pepper jam, or crab cakes with honey-jalapeño sauce. Salads made from ingredients bought fresh that day pair with oven-touched entrees such as parmesan-crusted chicken or maple-orange salmon. The dinner closes with sweet selections including a mini baked alaska drizzled with blackberry coulis or a resumé written in chocolate syrup.

Candles and a soothing CD brûléed by the chef herself electrify the home with romantic touches, and optional wine pairings may be added for an additional fee. After the courses have run, Chef Alejo cleans every plate, utensil, and pot, leaving kitchens looking fresh-faced for their morning appointment with breakfast.

Cooking for You!

Chef Jackie Alejo of Cooking For You! fills household kitchens with the sizzle and bustle of a restaurant line and freezers with expertly stored gourmet meals. Alejo serves families throughout the Houston area with personal and private chef services, creating easily stored-and-served edibles crafted with food allergies, dietary restrictions, and fear of certain pasta shapes kept in mind. Meals are prepared with fresh ingredients purchased on the same day, sizzled and seared in the patron's personal kitchen, and stored in clearly-labeled containers with detailed reheating instructions. Alejo also offers service for holiday parties, wedding receptions, dinner parties, and in-home food fights.

Customer Reviews

Had a very pleasant evening. Enjoyed chatting with Jackie and watching her cook.
Lin M. · November 12, 2012
Jackie was pleasant and efficient. Cleaning up as she went made the final clean up short and quick. If you like your meat done a particular way, make sure to let her know. She will accomodate.
